Default speed issue

i have a 03 ranger v6 3.0 manual trans. this is my first ranger so i really have no basis to compare this to but it seems to lack speed. it gets to 55 good then it really does not want to go any more. i will mat it and i can really only hit 65mph at anout 2500-3000 rpm area. is this right or ?? any help is appreciated.

Maybe your upshifting too early...I dont think it would hurt to downshift at 2500-3000 rpm to gain speed.
